minton, chef of the jer-ne restaurant here at the beautiful ritz- carlton marina del rey hotel and spa. today, we're going to make a super easy, super simple, beautiful tomato salad. what i have here is a slice selection of gorgeous california heirloom tomatoes. here we have some micro basil, which is just the sprouts of the basil. it's very tender. you can eat the whole stem, delicious. in addition, i've got this wonderful burrata mozzarella. now, what this is, is it's mozzarella that is actually combined with heavy cream to create a softer, smooshier, if you will, mozzarella experience. i've got some coarse salt, extra virgin olive oil, a little bit of premium balsamic vinegar. so, all we're going to do to this salad is we're going to take our tomatoes and we're going to dress them with a little bit of this extra virgin olive oil and coarse salt and pepper. we're just going to kinda slide these guys around. and this is the easiest salad and so simple, so delicious. we're going to put a couple of these tomatoes on the plate... however you like... and some of this beautiful mozzarella.
